How to Use? – Best Practices

Drivers will need to send the link to their personalized website to the Rider before closing the trip [after which it is too late].

What I do is while en-route to customer I’ll send them a SMS Text letting them know I’m coming. This way the relay phone # is fresh in my history and the last used.

Then before closing the trip, I’ll send them a final Text, like this:

Thank you for being a great passenger..  I’ve rated you 5 stars, and I hope I’ve earned the same.  Tips/Free Rides/Follow Up/RSVP: https://tftr.ca

Instead of copying/pasting the text every time, I create macros which replace a key phrase with the text.

For example – Tell it to replace “..1” or some other unique tag that you wouldn’t normally type with your key phrase.

For iOS devices, you can find this in Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Text Replacement

For Android I downloaded and set-up a free program: Texpand – Text Expander
